Thanksgiving wishes!

Just wanted to pop in, tell everyone Happy Thanksgiving. I have so much to post on, including a trip downtown (with photos) to see a pirate ship battle, lots of personal thoughts including my own battle with socializing, pre-marital counseling review, wedding plans and more! Wow, that just sounded like an advertisement!

Half day at work today, a few hours which I had hoped to be laid back and therefore able to sneak in one of the above posts. Nope. Its a cram-what-we-can-in kinda day. But hey, I'm grateful for a half day!

This Thanksgiving, I'm thankful for:

My family. Though we sometimes butt heads and are occasionally in each others business too much, we are always there for each other. Always. I've been so aware of this lately. When times are rough financially, there's no hesitation in support. When a shoulder is needed, we're there for each other. When I need to vent, there's always an ear. I'm so thankful for that.

My health. I know this seems cliche, but recently exercise has flown out the window due to a full plate of wedding to dos. (And the freezing cold outside!) I'm so aware of the difference in the way I feel when I don't exercise vs. when I do. Its amazing. Right now I am sluggish, tired all the time. I need exercise. I promise myself a couple of walks over the long weekend and to pick it back up full time after the wedding. I'm thankful that I am able bodied and have kept my health up thus far to the point that I can exercise.

My soulmate. He is everything to me. He supports me, comforts me, makes me laugh when I need it most. He is my best friend, my ear, my entertainment. He is selfless, giving, spontaneous, affectionate. Everything I would want in a husband. I am so thankful that God kept us in parallel paths our whole lives and then brought us together at exactly the right moment in our lives. I am so thankful.

Have a wonderful holiday, lots of turkey and may you fall victim to a food coma without being harrassed for it. Hugs!

Don't forget that alcohol is also a great substitute for proper diet and exercise.

Happy Thanksgiving!

the best of relationships are ones where you consider each to be your very best friend. too many people dont have that in common. luckily, you guys do! :)
